Doug Martin No. 6February 8th, 2013
Last night Joe watched some college hoops and found two incredible games with buzzer-beaters to end both, one of which was a crazy play by Illinois to beat No. 1 Indiana.
Those games, along with a few Köstritzer beers, helped soothe Joe’s post-football-season depression.
Good beer always helps, too.
Anyway, Joe also mined the interwebs for football news and came across an interesting piece from popular sports radio personality Adam Schein. The normal co-host of SiriusXM NFL Radio’s “The Blitz,” Schein also types a regular column for NFL.com.
In a recent column, Schein wrote about his top 47 NFL moments for the 2013 season. Why 47? Why not!
Anyway, Schein picked Bucs running back Doug Martin’s crazy game against the Raiders this season as his sixth-best NFL moment of the just concluded season.
6) Doug Martin gashes the Oakland Raiders for 251 yards and four touchdowns in Week 9, delighting the fantasy owners of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers rookie nationwide.
What a game that was and it proved Martin was no fluke, and that Bucs rock star general manager Mark Dominik hit a home run by trading up from the second round to grab Martin late in the first.
Joe just crosses his fingers that Martin wasn’t overworked. As we all know, there is only so much tread on the tires of every running back.
